Ehhh, if you're looking for forward vocals, you may want to look elsewhere. The MD vocals are pretty neutral, to just a tiny bit pulled back, especially with the dog pads. Tbh while the HD600 isn't technically as good, it did have more intimate vocals, even if that range isn't necessarily forward on the FR graphs, the soundstage pushed it deep into my soul. YMMV of course.

Some PP 20 spoiler (Click to show)
You could argue that the hyperoats thing is one such thing but if you look back at ep. 2 when Akane was taking a shower, the AI jellyfish asked her what to eat for breakfast and she asked for Chinese-flavoured breakfast. Then in the next scene :3 the show showed how the Chinese-flavoured breakfast looks like processed space food of the future. It's been alluded/foreshadowed that the food they used is processed, and then they explained that it's HYPAHOATZU.
Now on to the juicier part (Click to show)
I agree. The Japanese society doesn't need it to protect itself from within; that's what Sibyl is for; but to protect themselves from without; i.e. from the other foreign nations. The drones are used as border controls. In the episode with the riots, Division 1 said that it needed to reprogram the border drones to control the riots.
I think I understand what you hate about it actually: Makishima himself. I mean like you said, if Makishima didn't come you wouldn't know all this things about Sibyl and would've just be as happy as most people in PP-Japan. I think in the next 2 episodes Gen will tell the story of why Makishima is doing all this, but for now it looks like the typical anarchist. He said so himself actually why he's dong all this: in this world of sugar-coated tyranny, he want to see what will people on the edge do when they are given a real choice to make. He does it for that hikikomori dude that plays around in anarchists' forums things. He gave that female student artist the freedom to express herself more fully. The biggest one, I think, was he gave Akane real power to judge someone by giving her a shotgun to stop him from killing Yuki. He is, for all intents and purposes, Chaos; just want to see the world burn. He said that too when Sibyl offered him to join them.

Now on to Sibyl's flaws. I would like to think that I know how Gen thinks with this. Since I am assuming that Makishima, for now, it just Chaos, and as you said that Sibyl is Order; a perfect one to all eyes; he just want to see how the populace will react. And in all that effort, we know that Sibyl is as flawed as humans are, since they are essentially still human. In a sense, this is like "bring down the Big Brother" thing, only the populace is actually happy for once, and the rebel is just some psychopath.

I feel like the show, looking relatively in its universe/timeline, is showing how Sibyl usually deals with psychopaths that it can't judge through cymatic scan, and failing. Usually all those psychopaths agree on Sibyl's offer, but this one time it's someone like Makishima, a, so far and dare I say, chaotic neutral. He is the MacGuffin to show how flawed is Sibyl is.

That's what I think at least. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

For the record, I'm not conveniently ignoring your long post on the world of Psycho-Pass; I agree with it too.

Dang, that's an absolutely awesome post. So much win! I'm not even going to try and get involved. All I can say is niceu!

EDIT: Make that $14 on FullCompass.

If it is truly as simple of a problem as that. Why doesn't he fix it? That is $350-$400 worth of speaker there and a $30 fix (its $14 each right?)

 

IS there truly something else?

 

Check around to see what type of soldering job it is

 

If it's a simple one. Do you have access to a solder kit/station? If not, that's an extra $30-$50 (If you can't borrow anything or find a dude that has one then its $25 for the station, $6 for the solder and $6 for a deslodering pump)

I was just using my laptop speakers and it sounded good, but now that I have my rig on too I was missing out on those bass drops. :o

One word: epic

We weren't exactly sparing. More like, having a socratic seminar on the ideals of the series and what we personally feel from it. Mine was from the approach of Sibyl with Makishima never happening and its qualification as a leader of society.

Damn, I don't have an invite to iPedobear, sorry about that.

That makes f(x) something completely different.

Yup, I won't go into any more detail, but yup :)

I actually liked that song, gosh darnit.


I also just grabbed the Key piano arrangement and Key Classic albums too. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, these are wonderful eargasms!

I don't think Eidios studios knows what a Faraday Cage is or are very good geographical experts.

 

Or....the more logic response would be that they want to make a fun game so screw logic.
